Hi perlmn,

you get some software such as xmms with nearly all linux distributions ... incase you do not have one, download mplayer

perlmm, you almost sure should have xmms installed. just press ALT+F2 from your GUI and type there xmms
it should open something that looks almost identically to winamp.
besides that, in newer distros, .mp3 extension suppoort has been removed due to licence that had to be payed for supporting this format. So, the workaround is to install the xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-13.i386.rpm from here: http://staff.xmms.org/priv/redhat8/

Good luck

'zinf' is available, as well, (It was previously called 'emusic' or so)

 It offers an impressiveplaylist editor, but the audio equalizer isn't quite as impressive as the one for  XMMS.

Additionally, if you go with XMMS (rolks are right on recommending this, though maybe someone would still like zinf), then you may want to look around for some XMMS "plugins".

For example, there's an XMMS plugin for using an infrared remote control to control the playback, another one for using it as an alarm, and there are some graphical things for visualization, ('goom', 'infinity', etc) -- quite a few plugins altogether, along with these examples

If you get a hankering to try some other sound applications on Linux, http://linux-sound.org/ can be a great resource, for finding your way around in what's avaiilable

Finally, http://freshmeat.net is generally a great place to start, when looking for software to do something in particular
